A Must Watch!!

by

I came into this movie blindly, only slightly thinking it would be like Cast Away. While it does feature a guy getting stranded on an island, the similarities end there.

The lack of dialogue in this movie was so refreshing, and understanding what was going on just by looking at the characters and the backgrounds made it interesting. It made you pay attention more.

I also liked how this movie reflects almost (if not all) of the emotions humans go through. Ultimately, it is about nature, and how life can throw us off course, but that doesn't mean it is the end of the world. You should be grateful for what you have.

Also: the extras for this are fantastic if you love behind the scenes and commentary!!

The Red Turtle Has No Clothes

by

The Red Turtle stunned me by being one of the worst movies I have ever watched, and this is despite it receiving some of the most abject praise I have ever heard!

Problem Number One: the lack of dialog. It is certainly possible to do a wordless movie, counting on the expressiveness of the human face in either live action or animation to do the communicating; however, that is going to take a lot of closeups. You cannot do what this movie does, which is rely mostly on a bunch of long shots depicting two dots and a slash for the eyes and mouth! The Blu-ray edition itself gives a perfect example of the pretentiousness this film fairly oozes; under Languages, on the Subtitles Page, you can select English, Portuguese, or Spanish,... for a movie that voices but a single word: “Hey!”
